Here We Go Again: Lindsay Lohan Arrested for Assault


Turns out bad reviews for her role as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick weren’t Lindsay Lohan‘s only problem this week. On Thursday morning, the actress was arrested for assault following an altercation with a 28-year-old female, an NYPD spokesperson confirms with

According to police, Lohan — who has been released from custody — allegedly assaulted the woman at 4 am in the Meatpacking District club Avenue in New York City. Lohan’s rep has not yet responded to’s request for comment.

The arrest is the latest setback for the actress, who earned a victory earlier this year when her supervised probation — stemming from a 2007 DUI arrest — was lifted. Lohan, however, still remains on informal probation for a misdemeanor theft charge following accusations that she had stolen a necklace from a jewelry store in Venice, Calif., in 2011.

Despite her supervised probation being lifted in March, Lohan has still had a troubled 2012. In June, the actress was hospitalized following a car crash with an 18-wheeler semi-truck trailer, and, days later, was treated for exhaustion after being found unconscious in her bed while filming Liz & Dick in L.A. In September, Lohan was arrested (but never formally charged) for leaving the scene of an accident involving a pedestrian in New York City, and, in October, was one half of a domestic dispute with her mother that led to police intervention.

Lohan has also been the target of bad PR this year — not only was Liz & Dick panned by critics, but the actress was also criticized for canceling her Nov. 16 20/20 interview with Barbara Walters just days before the sit-down was scheduled to air after reportedly being dissatisfied with the direction of the interview.

The actress, however, seems to see the silver lining. “[I regret] nothing, because then I wouldn’t have been able to cry in scenes at the drop of a hat,” Lohan told Us Magazine last week. “I have it tattooed: ‘Live Without Regrets.’ I’m not saying I wanted to go to a jail cell, but I’ve drawn from all of it.” In fact, Lohan even told Us‘ reporter that troubles have made her a better actress. By that logic, seems Lohan’s ready for an Oscar.
